Morgan Wallen: 'Cover Me Up' Review

Cover me up

He never found someone who fit him quite like he expected, and definitely never found someone who made him want to become a better person. It earned the distinction of Song of the Year, and Isbell took home the additional honors of Album of the Year and Artist of the Year after he and Shires performed the ballad for a rapt crowd at the Ryman. Lede photo of Amanda and Jason after his 2016 Grammy wins by. Isbell's last night drinking before getting sober was spent in Richmond, Virginia; he got trashed on moonshine after finishing a private show. Favorite Lyrics: I put your faith to the test when I tore off your dress in Richmond on high, but I sobered up and I swore off that stuff forever, this time. This song tells the story of a man who was a little too reckless and hard to tie down in his earlier years. Morgan Wallen started playing the song just for himself as a warmup backstage for his voice before being persuaded to perform it.

Those at the Ryman watched them do this back in 2014, and those who caught the most recent leg of his tour had the privilege of taking in this performance, as well. Another addition to their touring life flies as the splendid backdrop for their live show: three stained-glass cathedral window tableaus, each featuring an anchor and sparrow, the same image Isbell and Shires sport as twin tattoos that represent Isbell, Shires, and the baby. Morgan Wallen is known for his rough around the edges and redneck styled country music. Isbell and Shires are parents, now, and their baby, Mercy Rose, comes along for the tour bus ride. . This song is a personal testament of his life and is extremely vulnerable.

Morgan Wallen does this song amazing justice as he performs his own take on it. Eventually he released it as a standalone single accompanied by directed by Justin Clough. Put your faith to the test when I tore off your dress In Richmond on high But I sobered up and I swore off that stuff Forever this time Isbell had discussed getting sober extensively but it was only in February 2012, when Amanda Shires initiated an intervention with a couple of others that he gave up booze. The five minute song is nothing shy of heartfelt. Amanda Shires is also the woman who got Isbell sober. . .
